Plastics Engineer Resume

We see many products in our day-to-day life that are made of plastic. These products are manufactured using various machines, dies, tools, etc. The person responsible for designing, manufacturing and maintaining these machinery, dies and tools is known as a Plastic Engineer. The word plastic is used, because this person caters to the manufacturing products and processes involving only plastic as the basic raw material. Thus, a Plastic Engineer has a specific degree in engineering and possesses the required skills and qualities to work with this raw material.

Why is plastic engineering different from working on metal engineering?

Plastic is malleable and at the same is delicate as compared to metal. A metal when shaped, molded, beaten with hammer, etc., does not easily break, but plastic is breakable, and thus needs to be handled with care. Moreover, metals take a longer time to take the shape of the mold, to melt and to get back to its original form again. This time is comparatively very less for plastic. Thus, plastic engineering techniques differ from metal engineering to a great extent.
